Christianity: Selected Issues

  1. 1. Christianity SELECTED ISSUES Kent L. Saldaña
  2. 2. • Christianity is a Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life, teachings, and miracles of Jesus of Nazareth, known by Christians as the Christ, or "Messiah", who is the focal point of the Christian faiths.
  3. 3. • What do the pictures imply?
  4. 4. • What issues you recently heard on Catholic Churches? • Does it affect your faith? • How does it change your beliefs?
  5. 5. Here are some issues/problems which are in conflict with Christian teachings: • Ecumenism • Sexuality • Family and Divorce • Capital Punishment and Euthanasia
  6. 6. Ecumenism This refers to the effort of the Catholic Church to sponsor activities and initiatives to promote mutual understanding and unity among all Christians. According to Brodd (2003), It can also be described as the promotion of worldwide Christian unity and will be anchored from Vatican’s Decree on Ecumenism.
  7. 7. Sexuality The issue of sexuality has always been controversial for the Catholic Church. Due to its conservative view of human sexuality, it has often found itself in conflict with progressive and liberal ideas with regard to certain issues connected to sexuality such as artificial contraception, abortion and homosexuality. In general sexuality dwells with sexual orientation, sexual activity and sexual feelings.
  8. 8. Family & Divorce The Christian view on marriage is based on Matthew 19:-6. Thus Catholic Church does not allow divorce since it believes in the sanctity of marriage which should be a lifetime bond between a man and a woman and is considered a legal bond on earth and spiritual bond in heaven. As of today, only Philippines don’t have a divorce law.
  9. 9. Capital Punishment & Euthanasia Capital punishment or Death Penalty wherein a person is punished by death for his or her capital crime goes against the Christian belief that life is given by God and should not be taken away by any person. Since Christian advocates the belief that life is given by God, euthanasia or mercy killing is also considered immoral since it entails taking away what has been given by God, and that human beings should never interfere with the natural process of death.
  10. 10. “Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply your mind to my knowledge,” (Prov. 22:17). GOD BLESS !
